Samantha G. Lee, MD

Samantha G. Lee, M.D. is an OB/Gyn serving women’s health needs on the Central Coast. She received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in Farmington, Connecticut. Her Obstetrics and Gynecology internship and residency were completed at the Los Angeles County + University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

Dr. Lee was inspired to get into healthcare as she was raised by a doctor and a nurse. Through their daily work, she saw the impact caring for others can have. She loves caring for women and people at all stages of life, as well as addressing all aspects of health.

She says her goal is to provide patients with the information and power to make decisions about their healthcare that best suit them with a focus on holistic care and disease prevention. Dr. Lee says, “Every day we strive towards the goal of healthy and happy moms and babies. We strive for women at every age to optimize their health, to continue living a full life.”

Dr. Lee says to her patients, “No question is off limits – ask away! We try to address everything at every visit but if we run out of time, we will surely check in again soon!”

When not at work she loves to spend time with her rescue dog, hike, and spend time at the beach.

Dr. Lee also speaks some Spanish.
